WLPGA/AEGPL Florence – A Bridge To The Future

Around 2,100 visitors from 113 countries converged on the forum and exhibition. ITO were one of 120 exhibiting companies and we demonstrated many of our innovative products.

The earthquake actuated cut-off system was especially well received, which alongside the PA Mixer were developed specifically to asset before and after disasters. Of course the PA System has now many more uses.

We made many new friends and contacts as well as meeting many old ones and are looking forward to following up mon these contacts to provide the solutions to their LPG needs.

60th Anniversary


Ito Koki was formed in 1954, and so 2014 sees our 60th anniversary year. This began with our company assembly in Osaka at the end of November 2013. All members of the Ito Koki group came together to celebrate this milestone Anniversary.

It was also a special occasion for our President, Mr Niroh Utsumi who celebrated his 50th anniversary with the group. He was presented with a photo mosaic of all his colleagues – 50 years and works full days, everyday.


 There were also many other long service awards for 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 years. Loyalty within Ito Koki is a two-way thing. There were also awards for innovative ideas, sales achievements and 100% attendance.

The Assembly was followed by a Banquet for all employees of the company.



New Name, new ideas – but the high quality remains the same!



2014 AEGPL Genoa

The 2014 AEGPL Forum and Exhibition will be held in historic Genoa, Italy.

 The exhibition stand will feature amongst other things, the ecoRizer-air heating vaporiser which with no running costs and no carbon emissions is the most eco-friendly and cost effective solution to LPG vaporisation. Also, the award-winning PA system which mixes propane with air to produce a synthetic natural gas and fully approved for sale within Europe will be demonstrated and the HLB, leak detection system for underground piping introduced.

The exhibition will also be the launchpad for the new TA X 10 OPSO automatic changeover system with remote telemetry which has recently been added to the wide range of automatic changeovers with and without telemetry. The TAX system is compatible with most telemetry interface systems and offers many logistics advantages as well as peace of mind for end users

29 – 30 September 2012, WLPGA Bali, Indonesia.

The beautiful island paradise of Bali hosted this year’s WLPGA Global Forum (the 25th). Not that we had much time for sightseeing, visitor numbers were very high (1,400 from 70 countries), mainly from the Far East naturally but much interest was again shown in the Ito Koki range. Prime attention was again shown to the PA System for generating SNG from Propane and the Earthquake sensing devices.
The highlight for Ito Koki was of course the presentation of the WLPGA Innovation Award for the Technical Paper presented to the GTC at the Doha Event in 2011.


Brussels AEGPL – 6,7 June 2012

The AEGPL was held in Brussels this year and the organisers should be congratulated for making it such a great success, with a considerable number of visitors coming from a very broad base of countries and backgrounds and tremendous interest in ITO Groups Innovations. We used the show to launch our Automatic Changeover with OPSO and telemetry function, our new Tensile Trigger Hoses and demonstrate other innovative products such as our synthetic gas generator and heat absorbing vaporizers. ‘The most positive show to date’.



Conference Exhibition & Global Technology Conference

Sheraton Doha Resort & Convention Hotel


The global LPG meeting point was held in Doha Qatar in 2011 (Scrabble buffs please note you don’t always follow a ‘Q’ with a ‘U’ !).

The event was especially important to ITO KOKI as we were given the honour of presenting a paper to the Global Technology Conference, the title of which was ‘LPG Applied technology for Seismic Hazard’. There was a great deal of interest shopwn in the Earthquake Sensing and Safety products and again the PA System which had proved such a lifeline to people during the great Earthquake and Tsunami of 11 March 2011.
